Snapchat down as social media users report app crashes
Scottish social media users are in a frenzy after popular messaging app Snapchat crashed today.
The social media app, which allows users to share images and text messages, went down at lunchtime.
One user wrote that they could not post to their story and had been left "fuming" while another stated: "Logged out now unable to log in, saying oops we could not find the credentials, my details are correct."
A post from someone listed as 'Snapchat Admin' said the service "will shortly be back up and running" and added: "Please log out and log back in in the meantime to refresh your connection."
Downdetector saw the number of reports concerning Snapchat rise from 3,649 at 11.49am to 12,465 by 12.05pm.
The outage comes just over a week after a major service issue took Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger offline.
